SDI is an internationally recognised documentary research centre set up in 2004 at Edinburgh College of Art, specialised in documentary training, production and distribution. Our aim is to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond and bridge the gap between academia and industry.
Our films have played at film festivals and have picked up major awards and nominations. In 2007 we set up SDI Productions Ltd, in order to develop a slate of feature documentaries.
Africa in Motion (AiM) is an annual African film festival taking place in Scotland, consisting of film screenings and complementary events. Now in its fourteenth year, AiM brings the best of African cinema to Scotland—making it possible for Scottish audiences to engage with African stories and industry professionals from the continent.
